CNMAT's Resource Library →
Berkeley’s Center for New Music and Audio Technology (CNMAT) has a complicated (but effective!) way of tracking resources available within their fabrication facilities.
I research new technologies and tools used by multidisciplinary human-centered design teams. I am also interested in the role that sustainability plays in early-stage design, both in balancing the users’ and designers’ values with respect to sustainability, and in using sustainability as a source of inspiration for innovation. I am currently a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the in|situ lab at INRIA...
